RIT's College & Careers is an opportunity for rising highschool seniors to experience college life, while learning about different programs and career options. Hosted by the office of Undergraduate Admissions in conjunction with departments all across campus, the program attracts over 1000 students annually.
Just like last time, I've put together a Storify - no better way to capture the moment than with real-time Tweets and Instagrams.
I've also added a Flickr slideshow at the top - photos taken from the entire weekend, all over campus by our professional (read: amateur) photographer... me! :)
[ View the story "RIT College & Careers - August 2012" on Storify] RIT College & Careers - August 2012 Rising seniors are invited to RIT's College & Careers program - a fun-filled weekend that allows them to see and feel what it's like to be a college student at RIT.
